Climate and Environmental Database Systems by Michael Lautenschlager, Manfred Reinke

By Michael Lautenschlager, Manfred Reinke

Climate and Environmental Database Systems comprises the papers offered on the moment foreign Workshop on weather and Environmental Database structures, held November 21-23, 1995, in Hamburg, Germany.
weather and environmental facts can be separated into periods, quite a lot of good based information and smaller quantities of much less based information. the big quantities are produced by way of numerical weather versions and by means of satellites, dealing with facts within the order of importance of a hundred Tbytes for the weather modelling websites and a thousand Tbytes for the recording and processing of satellite tv for pc information. Smaller quantities of poorly established info are the environmental information, which come almost always from observations and measurements. Present-day difficulties in facts administration are hooked up with a number of information kinds.
Climate and Environmental Database Systems addresses the cutting-edge, useful event, and destiny views for weather and environmental database structures, and should be used as a textual content for a graduate point path at the topic or as a reference for researchers or practitioners in industry.
